Lucas County’s Living Green, Saving Green pilot project will demonstrate how homeowners can easily cut energy costs and reduce carbon emissions with the installation of different energy efficient products in 11 homes next week.
The homes, chosen by an independent review panel comprised of representatives from the United Way of Greater Toledo, Owens Corning, Neighborhood Housing Services, Gross Electric, and Columbia Gas, will be retrofitted with products donated by donating companies.
The products will be installed by the participating homeowners, Living Green Saving Green volunteers, and corporate sponsors.

Jay Hellwig starts his work day around 8 a.m. and he likes to end it by 6 p.m.

"The work we do is a lot of residential work," Hellwig said, "And they don't want you to get there too early. Some evenings we get called out for a service call. Our line of business is a service we offer, so we have to cater to the customer."

“We remember with gratitude Grace Luebke February 10, 1920 – February 14, 2009” a line on the library’s Web site says.
